    It's Impossible to Stop.

    As a child I never cried. Then I cried a lot. Everywhere and about everything. Several times in front of teachers. Just because my teachers would make a comment like "You have to work on this or that.". It would make me cry. Now I'm hardly ever crying again...

    A Thought?

     Sometimes... it seems like the people that try not to cry are the ones in need of a really good cry. You can't hold everything in forever. You have a breaking point. Just let it out when you can...  But what do I know? I cry all the time. :/

    A Family Poison!
